NIDA International Photography Symposium 2019

NIDA International Photography Symposium 2019 is pleased to launch an open call for lens based works for a curated evening of projections in Nida, Lithuania.

The theme of this open call is Futures / Intersections, tying in with the overall themes of this year’s programme.

Artists and photographers of any age, nationality and geographic location are invited to submit lens based works in a form of photographic series or short videos (up to 10 min) exploring the theme. They are looking for broad and innovative interpretations of Futures / Intersections theme, whether it’s speculations on the future of the planet or humanity, a close look into utopia/ dystopia, future of the photographic image or technology. Yet it’s not only the content of submitted work that should reflect the themes, but also it’s execution: they are interested in seeing works that exist at the intersection in between photography and other mediums, disciplines and sciences. What is the future of photographic storytelling and how will we read pictures in the future?

Analogue and digital experiments, collage works, videos, augmented photography, simulations and anything that may fall into the broad category of lens based media are welcomed.

Selected works (up to 20) will be screened during NIDA International Photography Symposium 2019 in Lithuania in the second week of September. The symposium is now in it’s 42nd year and has grown to attract local and international artists, photographers, lecturers, historians and critics to a special location on Curonian Spit on the Baltic Sea. This year’s programme explores themes of Futures, Intersections, Photography Collections and Activism.

This is a great opportunity to share your work with an international audience of photographers, artists, curators, critics and gallery representatives in a unique setting of pine forests and sand dunes.
